Car reviews - Holden - Astra - Convertible
31 May 2002
THE convertible's interior mirrors that of its fellow Astra models, although there are some minor differences reflecting the more exclusive nature of the soft-top. These include chrome ring surrounds on the instrument dials, a silver finish on the centre console and gearshift surround (which it shares with the SRi), chrome-plated door handles and handbrake button, and a Bertone badge on the flip-out ashtray cover. There is also a revised centre console with the addition of heated seat controls, electric roof and window buttons (separate from the standard electric window buttons on the driver's door armrest, this button raises and lowers all four windows at once) and a smaller centre console open storage compartment (due to the location of the electric roof and window buttons).
